A former convent, the beautiful palazzo housing the apartment is only steps away from Cortona’s world-famous attractions.
This elegant apartment is housed in a palazzo and it can be found on the first floor. Guests access Casa Alice from a street-level entrance, then climb a communal staircase (20 steps) to enter the apartment.
Beautifully decorated with antiques and design pieces, Casa Alice also features original marble beams with Latin engravings.
The entrance leads to an open-plan area with a fully-equipped kitchen and a comfortable living room.
There are also two bedrooms (a double and a single), as well as a bathroom with shower.
There is no air conditioning. However, because of its location and nearby buildings shielding it from the sun, Casa Alice can be cool even in Summer.
Please note that because of its location and architecture, the apartment isn’t suited to those with mobility difficulties.
As this is a town center apartment, there are no terraces, gardens or outdoor areas, instead, the beautiful Cortona is your backyard! Made famous by the movie ‘Under the Tuscan Sun’, Cortona is perched on a hill overlooking the Valdichiana valley. This beautiful medieval town is rich in history and art, but also excellent restaurants, cafes and ice-cream parlors. All are within walking distance from Casa Alice.
Wi-Fi, dishwasher, oven, cooker/stove, fridge and freezer, American-style coffee maker, Moka pot, toaster, kettle, washing machine, iron and ironing board, hairdryer.
